Fibroblast growth factor (FGF) 23 inhibits renal phosphate reabsorption by activating FGF receptor (FGFR) 1c in a Klotho-dependent fashion. The phosphaturic activity of FGF23 is abrogated by proteolytic cleavage at the RXXR motif that lies at the boundary between the FGF core homology domain and the 72-residue-long C-terminal tail of FGF23. Here, we show(More)
Rodents fed fish oil showed less obesity with a reduction of triglyceride synthesis in liver, relative to other dietary oils, along with a decrease of mature form of sterol regulatory element binding protein-1 (SREBP-1) and activation of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha (PPARalpha). Decrease of mature SREBP-1 protein by fish oil feeding was(More)
As our understanding of the mechanisms that govern bone development advance, the role of epigenetic modifications in these processes becomes increasingly evident. Interestingly, in parathyroid hormone (PTH)-induced bone metabolism and remodeling, recent evidence shows that PTH signaling employs a particular facet of the epigenetic machinery to elicit its(More)
